All the pretty paper flowers

April 14, 2009

As lovely as flowers are I hate that they fade so quickly.  So I was looking around etsy for the fake kind and man those people are crafty! My favourite is the paper flowers at the top but you’ve got to love the strawberry sundae.

EtsyHacks how I love thee

April 4, 2009

In case you haven’t heard of it yet Etsyhacks is an absolutely brilliant website that lets you install scripts to make your etsy life just that little bit easier. In their words:

Etsy’s development team are working hard to bring out new features for the site, but there’s only so much they can do. They’re going to focus on features that bring the most benefit to the most users. These scripts are provided as examples of things that can be done without needing Etsy to change anything, but which (hopefully) make the user experience better and more efficient. Less time spent administering your Etsy business, more time spent making things.

I love how kind they are to Etsy here, I remember thinking when I first heard of Etsyhacks that it was a shame there was a need for 3rd party, unpaid programmers to bring us the little changes that we keep on asking for. Anyway – back to shouting the praises of Etsyhacks!

It currently works in Firefox although there are plans to make them available for other browsers. Here’s a sample of some of the delights Etsyhacks can bring you:

fast tagger

Add all your listing’s tags at once.

bulk image uploader

Upload up to five images at once when editing a listing.

copy listing

Quickly create a new listing based on an existing one.

printable receipt enhancer

Apply IDs and class names to elements on the printable receipt page, so that you can use stylesheets to change the appearance of the page. Change the font size, hide sections, change colours, add a logo

For the full list click here.  They run this for free but I’m sure any donations would be most appreciated.

Doomsday

March 28, 2009

With the rash of  zombie and post apocalyptic films and games that have been coming out these last two years I’ve been wondering. When the end of the world comes will it be zombies or bombs? Let me know what your thoughts are.

How to get your etsy mini on wordpress

February 1, 2009

kind of….

I love wordpress but it’s lack of code can be a tad frustrating.  For instance it can’t / won’t support the etsy mini. Yeah I could insert any image but I like the look of the mini and it saves me the hassle of getting together images, cropping, pasting and then repeating all that again when I fancy a change.

So here’s how to do it – kind of. This is more a way to insert a hyper linked image but it works and it’ll be pretty easy to change it every now and again.

Get a screenshot of your etsy mini and upload it to a photo hosting site. Add the TEXT widget to your blog and insert the following code, replacing the text in caps with the relevant info. It might also be an idea to add some words after the alt tag. These tags are picked up by search engines so you might as well seize the chance to improve your rankings while you’re at it 🙂

<a href=”SHOP LINK HERE” title=”SHOP NAME – THIS WILL APPEAR WHEN YOU HOVER OVER IMAGE”><img src=”IMAGE LINK HERE” width=”INSERT WIDTH IMAGE” height=”INSERT HEIGHT IMAGE” alt=”etsymini” /></a>

If you have any questions jut leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
